Welcome to The UnSunday Show with me, Mike Adams. I am a former institutional church pastor who has left that environment for a more authentic expression of the life of Christ in me, apart from empty, burdensome, and inconsistent religious obligations.

The UnSunday Show asks honest questions about the origin and validity of institutional church rules, traditions, and practices. These religious rules and practices lead us away from the simplicity of the gospel and into an exhausting performance-based experience that is designed to perpetuate itself by placing ever increasing demands on its people and are of no value in Christ. If you're exhausted from trying to keep all the inconsistent religious rules that have been placed on you, listen in to these conversations as we rediscover the freedom we've been given, apart from religion.
